    It was a volatile week on Wall Street last week with all 5 days producing triple digit moves in the Dow. Unfortunately, 3 of those were negative days, and 2 were positive which added up to a 167-point weekly loss for the Dow. On Thursday the market reacted negatively to Russia's threat to cease foreign assets, but volatility had been picking up before that.

    For the week, the TSP stock funds were hit fairly hard with the more volatile small caps and I-fund taking the

    It was a mixed week on Wall Street last week as the Fed seemed to ease concerns on interest rates and the S&P 500 delivered with a solid gain. Small caps, on the other hand, continue to lag and lost ground, and the international stocks ended the week flat so the TSP stock funds were not treated equally last week and TSP participants have been rewarded or punished in September based on which stock funds they've selected.

    It was a wild pre-holiday week for stocks but many indices managed to close near their highs for the week.
